Wow !!!!!!
Whatta a crafty weekend I had.  I was sooo lucky to be able to have heaps of crafty time this weekend.  The kids had their own things going on and my darling had work so it was just me my fav music and my bliss.  Sunday I had my bestie and her 3 beautiful sons for lunch but after that it was straight back out to my lil den.  I have my band gear set up out there too so I often have a break and a wee jam session while I wait for paint to dry.....soo my kind of a good time :)

So what did I get up to????.....I got started on the "keep on scrappin" challenge hosted by the ultimate Bona.  You have to create a mini album out of scraps from one collection of your choice. There was no theme but you couldn't use any dies, or punches.  It was my first challenge and I must say I was pretty over eager lol <3

So I chose the Tim Holtz Lost and Found collection, it seem to be a never ending stack I've created several projects with it, and if I'm clever there is still enough to make some cards or tags, heaps of goodie bits left for my journals and mixed media pieces.  I used scrap card board, and old packaging for the pages even used scrap flowers...well not scrap ones just ones that would never of made to a project cause of color.

Pretty happy with the cover.  Been hoarding a couple of Tim Holtz embellishments that I got in a rak from Geordie.
Love how these torn edges expose the corrogated board adds to the scrappy feel of the album.
I was so glad to use some of this plastic packaging I got from my kid toy boxes.

It was great to use my favourite technique "collage" in this album. A great and effective way to use scraps, and this paper was perfect for this mini.
HMMMMMMMMMMM My dumb pics have decided to stop uploading so that will have to be all for now.  Be sure to check out my vid on this mini :)
